So, I wanted to make a system by which I (or anyone else) could publish Lua widgets and make it as easy as possible to build them into Conky. Ive come up with a simple Lua script into which you can drop widget code blocks, some simple configuration info, and display them all with just a single call in Conky. That way, you only need one .conkyrc and one conky_widgets.lua script for all your widgety needs!
The .tar.gz file attached contains the basic Conky Widgets script; you will need one or more code blocks to make it work. For more info, please see the Conky Blog: [link]
The screenshot preview was created using a combination of my "Air" clock and four semi-circle rings. The widget code blocks for those widgets are contained in the packages below:
+ v1.1 -- Simplified calls to widgets by implementing a global drawing surface, and included imlib2 by default (03.11.2009)
+ v1.0 -- Original release (30.10.2009)
